O’Care Fiasco Is GOP’s Fault

Yeah. You read the title correctly.

care 2

This paragraph appeared in a Politico article recently :
Facing such intense opposition from congressional Republicans, the  administration was in a bunker mentality as it built the enrollment system, one  former administration official said. Officials feared that if they called on  outsiders to help with the technical details of how to run a commerce website,  those companies could be subpoenaed by Hill Republicans, the former aide said.  So the task fell to trusted campaign tech experts.

If a Democrat is occupying the White House, everything bad that happens is  the GOP’s fault. Everything good that happens is because of Obama and the  Democrats trying to fix what the Republicans messed up.

And this is why they’re now, believe it or not, blaming the Republicans for  the comical disaster that has been the Obamacare exchange website,  healthcare.gov. Yes, all the glitches, the errors, the crashes, the reasons that  the signups have been embarrassingly low, all that’s the Republicans fault.  care 1

They decided to go with Obama’s campaign computer nerd interns because  they were afraid the GOP might make the website engineers of a more professional  company testify in some committee hearing. Once again, the Democrats were  victims of those terrorist Republicans. I mean, the GOP pretty much were  holding the Obama administration hostage on this one. The Dems had no  choice but to use subpar website developers who happened to be their  buddies. It’s all the Republicans’ fault.

But what would be wrong with having an outside company testify? What is there  to be afraid of? Does the administration have something to hide?

Maybe the issue was a transparency one. If they had chosen a professional  company through competitive bidding, they would have gotten a much better and  cheaper deal than what they ended up with. But what if there was something about  the website or Obamacare that the administration wanted to be kept secret?

Perhaps they wanted their buddies to make the enrollment website, because they  knew they wouldn’t do a very good job. In other words, it was designed to fail  so that they could come and save the day with a simple and easy, single-payer  system.

But to cover up that fact, they claim the reason they didn’t want  professional technical help was because of the Republicans.

Hey, when all else  fails, just blame the Republicans.

And Bush.

Sheeple will fall for anything these  days.

    It’s Bush’s fault, don’t you know?

    PoLIBico. Proving that “journalism” can be practiced by the brain dead.

  3. Kathy says:

    If they didn’t have anything to hide, they wouldn’t be worried about testifying. To admit that and blame the R’s makes them look even more stooopid.

    Maybe these people are living in a “Ground hog” day and can’t escape!

    Oh Terry, where to begin? This “most transparent administration evah” has turned out to be the most lying, conniving, administration that I’ve experienced (and I’m an old dude). Because of his anti-American, anti-capitalistic, agenda, he simply CAN’T expose what his plans are – he is FORCED to hide EVERYTHING because he knows that the public would revolt if they knew what was going on “under the covers.” That is just another reason that we can’t trust anything he says to be truthful.

    Got to admire their stubborn consistency anyway, in the face of failure they can’t be moved. The second option of planned failure is not out of the question. It was designed to obfuscate from the beginning. But bringing in his cronies? Geesh.

    And say nothing about them having access to all the data, data miners that they are. It wreaks like everything he does. His campaign techies involvement ought to be even more grounds for scrutiny if not shutting it down. Imagine if, say, the RNC were tinkering around with the program and database or website?
